Sponsor a slow cooker for Stroud

Please help Transition Stroud by sponsoring a Slow Cooker pack for a local family this autumn and winter.

The cost of living crisis will push many in our community into poverty over the coming months. There will undoubtedly be knock-on effects on health - mental and physical - the wellbeing of children, and the sense of our community being happy and at ease with itself.

We know that putting good quality food on the table and sharing that food is part of what keeps families together. Yet the cost of food and of cooking is rising sharply. So we are asking people to sponsor a Slow Cooker Pack.

Slow cookers are highly cost-effective to use (about 15% of the cost of a conventional oven). They are very versatile - capable of cooking bread and making yogurt, as well as cooking casseroles and stews. The pack will comprise a slow cooker, a slow cooker cookbook and recipes, and some kitchen staples.

Transition Stroud is partnering with the Food Hubs in Stroud - Top of Town, Trinity Rooms, Middle of the Hill, Paganhill Community Group and Uplands - to ensure that the slow cooker packs are distributed to people who'll get the best from them. In addition, the Hubs will provide hints and tips about simple, nutritious recipes and run 'chop and chat' sessions to cook meals together.

A Slow Cooker Pack will cost around £30 each, and we are asking people who can afford it to make a minimum donation of £5 towards our target of £600 to provide 20 packs.

Transition Stroud is applying to Stroud Town Council in October for a grant to match-fund the money raised by this crowdfunder to enable us to help more families.
